Patient

Q: I hurt my knee a few days ago (when doing dancing, when i twisted it), it hurts to walk, put weight on it. I have rested, iced, taking pain relief and elevated it. I have taken time off school because it is so sore. Should i get crutches?

Symptoms:  Knee pain

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I think that you should get evaluated by a Doctor to confirm the cause of the injury and then get the treatment. Using crutches will help you prevent the injury.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
